Biopsychologist Susan Schneider discusses her latest book, "The Science of Consequences: How They Affect Genes, Change the Brain, and Impact Our World" and the discoveries about cause and their effects on our genetic makeup. 

"The Science of Consequences" tells a tale ranging from genetics to neurotransmitters, from emotion to language, from parenting to politics--bringing together research from many fields to show how something that seems so simple can explain so much.
